Five reasons why Tavleen Singh’s Durbar is my favourite book this season - FirstpostThe International Bibliography of Sikh Studies brings together all books, composite works, journal articles, conference proceedings, theses, dissertations, project reports, and electronic resources produced in the field of Sikh Studies until June , making it the most complete and up-to-date reference work in the field today. One of the youngest religions of the world, Sikhism has progressively attracted attention on a global scale in recent decades. An increasing number of scholars is exploring the culture, history, politics, and religion of the Sikhs. The growing interest in Sikh Studies has resulted in an avalanche of literature, which is now for the first time brought together in the International Bibliography of Sikh Studies. This monumental work lists over 10, English-language publications under almost 30 subheadings, each representing a subfield in Sikh Studies. The Bibliography contains sections on a wide variety of subjects, such as Sikh gurus, Sikh philosophy, Sikh politics and Sikh religion. Furthermore, the encyclopedia presents an annotated survey of all major scholarly work on Sikhism, and a selective listing of electronic and web-based resources in the field.

Jump to navigation. Tavleen Singh has been a famous byline for over 40 years now, reporting from datelines as diverse as Kashmir, Punjab and Pakistan. A long-time observer of Durbar politics in the networked world of Delhi, she is equally adept at chasing stories that take her into the heartland. Whether it is a pompous Vijay Mallya, whose silver poolside furniture she is stunned by; a socialite who gushes about Rajiv Gandhi noticing the colour of her nail polish; or Sanjay Gandhi's Doon School pals murmuring about his penchant for torturing birds, Singh has reported from the epicentre of many storms. It has given her a reporter's nose for news and an analyst's gift for understanding its context.
